#75 done!

75. Spend a weekend in Portland.

Portland sort of fell into my lap! My Aunt and Uncle and two cousins were coming for a wedding from Florida. My Grandparents were coming to spend a weekend with them from Grants Pass, OR. So my Dad, Peyton and I decided to join them for the weekend as well!

We saw some sights, spent time with family, ate Saint Cupcakes, did some shopping, and went to the Oregon Zoo. All in all a fun filled weekend.

Also, I finished reading Live, Laugh, Love - one of my books for # 92. I adored this book. It makes me want to learn to meditate. :) I highly suggest reading it if you haven't already.

Now I am starting the Hunger Games.

#66 Done!!!

66. Cancel unnecessary monthly bills.

The last two days I cancelled the three bills coming out monthly that are pointless. One I don't even know what it was and it took some research to figure it out. Once I figured it out I even convinced them to refund me the last payment they took out, considering it was a scam! Nothing I even signed up for.
I also cancelled Neopets Premium. Yeah. Neopets. I haven't played that in years. I was always to "old" to play it. I'm a dork. :)

Finally, I went and cancelled my gym membership. Again, I haven't used the gym in years. I don't have the time. I'd rather do stuff at home and in the free gym at my work. 

$55 saved per month!! 

I am also setting aside $20 from my paycheck on Monday (working on #63 -  Save $20 for each item I complete on this list.)

It feels so good to FINALLY cross something off of this list! Yay!

I haven't forgotten...

I feel weird that I have yet to cross off ONE item from my list. I have several in the works though. I have completed 24 days of my Project 365 blog as of today. I also just finished day 2 of the 30 Day Shred. I'm also about half way thru reading Eat, Pray, Love (from the best books of the decade list I found) and am well on my way to my goal weight.

I hope to make something from scratch this weekend (my list has cookies, cake, and pancakes). Peyton really likes cooking with me so this should be a fun weekend activity.

A lot of my list items cost money. I'm currently trying to save up money for our trip to Vegas (one month from today!) so those will have to hold off for now. But soon!
